      This was delicious! I didn't have any limes in the house, so I used lemon zest and we loved it. The entire house smelled yummy while it was baking. Thanks, Ellie, for this great recipe.

      I first made this cake for my grandmother's birthday. Se requested either a spice cake or a pound cake. This was the perfect combination. Only bad part was that I didn't get to try it. I made it again last night for my family and it was a HUGE hit. Even my non-cake eating husband is a fan and says this is his kind of cake. Both times I baked mine in a bundt pan (had to reduce cooking time to between 40-45 minutes) and then topped it with a vanilla flavored powedered sugar glaze. I will be making this cake often. Thanks Ellie!

      Lovely texture - tender and dense, like a poundcake should be. I served it with some homemade nutmeg whipped cream and it was delicious. I took some to a neighbor and he was very impressed with the texture, and pronounced it delicious.
